The group laying nest ‘Relax’ is designed specially for broiler breeders. Equipped with two separate and easy-to-lift nest roofs, it significantly facilitates nest and egg belt inspection.

Another new feature of Relax is the egg belt with a three-point bearing design. Its increased share of perforated surface and the triangular shape of the holes minimises contact surfaces between the eggs and the egg belt. Eggs that roll off are slowed down gently, which reduces the number of hair-cracked and dirty eggs.

Relax is made of durable materials increasing nest acceptance and improving nest hygiene. The smooth surfaces facilitate cleaning and reduce the bacteria load as well as insect infestation during the grow-out. The system has been designed as a nearly screw-less connector system and can therefore be installed easily and rapidly.

The second Big Dutchman novelty for breeder management are new generation poultry cages developed specifically for the reproduction of layer and broiler breeders by means of artificial insemination. This development has made Big Dutchman one of the first suppliers of poultry equipment responding to the trend of using artificial insemination in hatching egg production.
